Hello and welcome.
My name is Craig Clement and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in private practice in Durham, NC. I work with adult individuals, couples, and families to help them achieve the most fulfilled and authentic versions of themselves.
Reaching out for help can be difficult, but seeking the support of a counselor can lead to measurable positive change, meaning, and balance in your life. My style is warm, non-judgmental, and affirming. I am honest and straightforward and strive to create meaningful connection with all my clients. I leave space for you to safely explore issues of concern as well as aspirations. I have experience working with individuals from all walks of life and work collaboratively with clients to help them achieve their goals. Whether you are seeking support with hard to change behaviors, a life transition, or emotional connection, deciding to enlist professional help can be a brave first step towards healing.
I am fortunate to be a part of the Radical Healing Collective which is grounded in social justice and provides services using an anti-oppression lens to be inclusive and nurturing to all people.
My areas of experience include relationships, dating, premarital and marriage counseling, as well as issues surrounding communication, sex, fertility, pregnancy/child-loss, and parenting. I have a background working with survivors of domestic violence, helping individuals overcome addictions, men's issues, career and life transitions, and working with individuals experiencing depression or anxiety.
Where appropriate, I incorporate humor to provide levity regarding the stresses of daily life. I have been dedicated to the mental health field for the past 14+ years and use my experiences to inform my work. I am LGBTQIA affirming and incorporate an awareness of oppression and social justice into my work.
